TCD Anyone?

Regular price $85.00 Sale

This is one of those plates that started with an idea and a challenge.  When someone says "use stringers differently" all I could think of was tennis.  I set out to create a lady with a racket hitting a tennis ball.  Any lady can hit a tennis ball but I needed to make her identify with tennis in Dallas.  The big league organization here is TCD.  Next I needed to get a playful background.  What is more dainty than a flower.  You cannot imagine how much time was spent on this figure.  Each string of glass was hand shaped and melted over a candle flame. 

This plate measure about 9" in diameter and is 2 full layers of glass.  It is slumped and has a slight raise of the edges.
